"PRO PATRIA MORI is a story of friendship, rupture and healing. It deals with the fate of three friends -- Trevor Howe, from London and Cornwall, Ernst Steiner, from Lübeck, Germany and Etienne Bonnard from Fontainebleau, France -- who are fellow students at Morton College, Oxford, in 1914 just before the outbreak of the Great War.
Each enlists to fight for his country and suffers the physical and spiritual consequences of a war which ushers in a new kind of mechanized slaughter. The novel explores the consequences of various types of death for one’s country and ends as the world is about to come apart again with the outbreak of World War II.
